Muddy Chocolate Orange Cake

In less than ten days I’ll be a real grown up 30 years old. And every birthday needs a cake, well at least one. I might try for multiple cakes this years since it’s the big three-oh, and heck, why not? I got it into my head that I might want a jaffa-flavoured mudcake for one of my celebrations. It seems a little odd to bake your own birthday cake(s) so I won’t be doing that. But I can bake non-birthday jaffa-flavoured cakes right? And that I did.

I took Donna Hay’s muddy chocolate cake recipe and added the juice and rind of one orange. I might add a little more of each next time, for some extra jaffa flavour. The cake was a hit and I may or may not have had four pieces over the past three days.

Jaffa Brownie Cupcakes

The recipe is from last week’s New Idea magazine. Jaffas are one of my favourite types of candy – chocolate balls coated in orange flavoured candy. Crunchy on the outside, so soft on the inside! I’ve been looking for a cupcake recipe with a Jaffa/orange-chocolate flavour for a while. The cupcakes are yummy, like biting into a huge Jaffa. I’d prefer a ganache topping but I was out of cream at the time. The cupcakes aren’t quite as fudgy as brownies usually are. Avoid overcooking or they will be a tad dry. The recipe suggested orange-flavoured chocolate pieces on top, but I went straight for the Jaffas!
